“The power to succeed or fail is yours alone.”
If you’re reading this blog, you probably want to become better at something. You want to get motivated. But here’s the thing…I can’t create a great person…I can only help bring that person out.
That person is already inside of you.
One of my heroes is Jim Abbott, a baseball player who pitched a no-hitter for the Yankees on September 4, 1993. In fact, I have a signed photo of him in my hallway and it’s one of the first things that I see in the morning.
Jim Abbott was born without a right hand.
If Jim Abbott can, not only play professional baseball, but throw a no-hitter, without a right hand, imagine what you can do?
I use his photograph to inspire me and remind me that greatness is not what we’re born with; greatness is what we do with what we have.
You don’t have to be great at the start, but you need to start to be great.
This morning I woke up thinking about one of my favorite quotes, from Lance Armstrong…
“I’m just a normal guy, and I’m going to show you what a normal guy can do.”
It’s your choice…
if you make the most of today
if you look at the positive in every situation
if you go all out
if you look inside instead of outside
if you procrastinate procrastination
What will you choose today?
Thanks for reading.
